Question & Answer
Can you pls let me now who many years till this plant bears fruit. Cheers From:
Because it is grafted it will likely want to fruit in the first season however I would recommend that you take off the flowers in the first 2 years so that it put's it's energy into growing roots, branches and foliage so that it will handle the fruit in the third year.
